My Apple //e uses an "Apple II Ethernet Module" purchased from
on Jan. 22, 2011 for $89 in order to connect to the internet. The ethernet card
is also used by
(Apple Disk Transfer ProDOS) to transfer disk images between a PC and the Apple
//e physical 5.25" floppy disks.
On July 12, 2012 my dad installed a CFFA3000
card purchased 6/15/2012 from
for $175.10 (including 'remote buttons' + S/H). The CFFA card allows the Apple
//e to use a USB memory stick as virtual floppy disks and/or hard drives. So
now my Apple //e can boot to a "ProDOS 8 v2.0.3 06-May-93" partition in virtual
slot 7; or, boot from a DOS 3.3 floppy disk image in virtual slot 6, emulating
a "Disk II controller".
I've written numerous programs on the Apple //e and my laptop. The
WindowsXP laptop uses "A2
Oasis" to emulate an Apple //e. I've also used AppleWin which can emulate a
Mockingboard, sound card. They still make those, you know - Mockingboards!
To speed up programs written in AppleSoft BASIC, I use the "Microsoft
TASC v2.0 1/10/82" compiler. Yes, among dad's collection of old 5.25" floppies
was the compiler, back when Microsoft made software for the Apple //e.
